Create a BlackBerry ID

A BlackBerry ID gives you convenient access to multiple BlackBerry products and services. After you create a BlackBerry ID, you can use your email address and password to log in to any BlackBerry products that supports BlackBerry ID. With BlackBerry ID, you can manage apps that you downloaded from the BlackBerry World storefront and keep apps you downloaded when you switch devices.

If you previously created a BlackBerry ID, you must use it when you setup your new device (instead of creating a new BlackBerry ID). You can log in to both a tablet and smartphone using the same BlackBerry ID.

Setup a new BlackBerry id

Tip: It's important to choose a password that you can remember. For your BlackBerry ID username, be sure to use an email address that you use frequently. Recovery details can be sent to the email address that you use as your BlackBerry ID username if you forget your BlackBerry ID password. The email address that you use as a BlackBerry ID username doesn't have to be associated with your BlackBerry device.

Create New.
2. Tap the BlackBerry ID Username field and type a valid email address.
3. To view the password rules and tips, tap Rules and tips for your BlackBerry ID password.
4. In the Password field, type a valid password.
5. Type the same password in the Confirm Password field.
6. To view the recovery question tips, tap Tips for creating a secure password recovery question.
7. Tap Sign Up.

Change your BlackBerry ID password

1. On the homescreen, swipe down from the top of the screen.
2. Tap Settings, then tap BlackBerry ID.
3. Tap Change Password.

Change your BlackBerry ID information

You can change your username, screen name, first name, or last name.

1. On the homescreen, swipe down from the top of the screen.
2. Tap Settings, then tap BlackBerry ID.
3. Tap Edit.
4. Update the details you wish to amend.
5. Tap Submit.

For instance, when you use your existing BlackBerry ID on your new device, you can reinstall apps that you downloaded on your previous device from the BlackBerry World storefront, if a version of that app exists for your new device.

On the home screen of your old device, click Options.

Depending on your device, do one of the following:

Third Party Applications > BlackBerry ID.
• Click Device > BlackBerry ID.
• Click BlackBerry ID
